The Saint Mary’s University women’s hockey team has two more conference games against Saint Catherine’s University with a chance to improve their conference record of 2-4 before winter recess.
The Cardinals started their season facing powerhouse teams Gustavus Adolphus College and the University of Saint Thomas before playing St. Catherine's University for two more games. Although many games resulted in losses, the effort, gameplay and cohesive teamwork that the Cardinals executed is predicted to help them in their upcoming games. It certainly helped them sweep the College of Saint Benedict both at home and away, resulting in two wins for their season.
The Cardinals are set to return the first week of January for a non-conference double-header against Lake Forest College, in Illinois. The Cardinals will then conclude their non-conference season with three more games before returning for the second scholastic semester. After that, the Cardinals will return to conference play, said Head Coach Terry Mannor, with the hopes of getting to playoffs.
